Ahh this is amazingly useful! Slightly late, but would this method work with nylon or saran hair? I'm looking to make some straight wigs and this is the best tutorial/method I've seen yet (providing that I can use it XD)
Thank you! Glad it could be of help~ Yes, this would work the same for those types of hair, but you will need to heat style the hair somehow to get it to lay flat on top. (pouring HOT water over it, or using a heat wand.)
Ah that's brilliant thank you! I really look forward to trying it out, I've tried rerooting before but it's a bit more tedious and permanent than I would like, I'm really glad that I have something else to try
If you have a gluey part, try using a little bit of acetone or nail polish remover. Just wet a q-tip with it, and carefully dab at the glue. It should come off a little bit. Hopefully this does help for the next time you try as well! ♥
I'm actually making my own ooak bjd, and it's slow and steady. I'm still far from the wigging part, but this tutorial made something that seemed nearly impossible and very intimidating, not so scary, it was really great of you to share it! I will link you to my doll once she's done,
Sure! I bought these locks off etsy, but you can search for them online.
The ones in this tutorial were "Cotswold Locks", but you can also use 'Teeswater' locks, 'Wensleydale', 'Mohair', or any other creative material. I used feathers recently for a wig like this, but didn't do the split-top method with that one. ( I posted a pic today in my gallery)
